Aston Martin’s $7,450 AMR-C01 Racing Simulator Cockpit

Hyper car inspired racer worthy of any man cave

Aston Martin is hitting the Esports market hard with their first-ever racing simulator cockpit. Designed by the automaker and engineered by Curv Racing Simulators — the first partnership between the two UK companies — the AMR-C01 is as posh as it gets when it comes to a luxury racing simulator providing a fully immersive driving experience for the home user.

With a roughly $7,450 price tag (or £57,500, to be exact) and only 150 deliveries beginning late 2020, you can see why. Check out the photos:

More driver cockpit and less a Aston Martin replica, the AMR-C01 does integrate many of the automaker’s design cues — from the distinct Aston Martin Racing grille to the seating setup found in the V12-powered Valkyrie rocket. For a more customized look, 7 colour options and 3 trim choices are available. 

As the storied British carmaker puts it, “This was a challenge for the design team as, although the simulator isn’t a car, it is inspired by our racing cars.” We’d say they’ve pulled it off, resulting in a high-end simulator with a hypercar vibe worthy to hog space in any man cave.

Built of lightweight carbon fibre monocoque and running the latest Assetto Corsa software as standard, the hand-assembled virtual racer finds a massive, super ultra-wide gaming QHD 32:9 aspect ratio monitor front and centre, promising smooth visuals and high refresh rates to ensure Esport racers aren’t left in the dust.

Curv claims the users are able to run the simulator on various other platforms as well, including iRacing and rFactor2. 

I can picture the AMR-C01 in the most beautiful of residences as a sculptural work of art in its own right.”

In the cockpit, racer’s dive right into a all carbon fibre seat with custom trim, paired to a paddle shift and dual-clutch equipped F1-style steering wheel with a plethora of buttons and dials — 9 rotary dials and 12 push button, to be exact.

Down below, a clean and dust-free electronically-controlled pedal box setup with 200mm of travel takes the AMR-C01 to the next level. This assembly includes an electric actuator all housed in a carbon fibre enclosure. And to ensure audio duties are on point, the cockpit finds built-in speakers and a headset courtesy of Sennheiser.
